Is the engine smoking at all? Are you losing coolant/is the coolant level adequate? What about vacuum leaks?
It's also a good idea to check for BHG.

Please use punctuations!

Low RPM; check that you have no air leaks on the intake side past the AFM/MAF to the intake manifold.

bird Cage; Do you smell the sweet coolant smell? if so that is usually indicative of a a pinm hole leak in the coolant system. I had my OEM radiator develop a pin hole leak on one of the tubes. Initially I thought bhg but there was no smoke but that sweet coolant smell is unmistakeable.

Take your oil cap off and look underneath it. See if it’s slimy.

Yikes, Sounds like a terrible problem. Check for leaking fluid and/or coolant in your oil. Could be the head gasket if the coolant is disappearing.
